Winter 4hr - Tidbinbilla
The winter 4 hr was run at Tidbinbilla and won overall by Matt Crane and Rob Walter. Despite the damp (rain at times) conditions there were lots of slightly cold but happy rogainers. From our youngest competitor (Kyran at 3.5 weeks old) to supervets we can claim a sport for everyone! Michael Challen and Don McLean set a very good course taking in the highlights of the Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve from the north in the pines and south over the hill towards the Corin Dam road. Congratulations to the Womens Open winners Mace Neve and Lucy McGarva and Mixed Open winners Dane Roberts, Clare Lonergan and Lee Rice. Other category winners and full results on the results page. Many thanks to our numerous volunteers including vetters Andrew Rowe, Benita Sommerville and Troy Skaleskog; coordinator Susie Sprague and the on-the-day volunteers. Many thanks also to the Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve and the fantastic rangers for allowing us to use the area and all the help.
